The CLP 745 is the first model in the 700 series to feature the Bluetooth MIDI and audio technology. The user-friendly set-up allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to a series of bespoke apps to enhance your playing experience. So now you can analyse your favourite songs, calculate the chords, display the music, and play along! With these apps, you can explore endless playing possibilities.
The GrandTouch-S keyboard is Yamaha latest keyboard action which can faithfully translate every nuance from your fingertips into the music. Just like a grand piano, this piano action can replicate the pleasing response felt by the hammers hitting the strings, providing you with complete control over the music. The keys are even coated in a synthetic material to ensure your fingers don't slip when playing for extended periods of time.
Just like Yamaha's premium grand pianos, the CLP 745 boasts wooden white keys. This wood has been cut from the best parts of dried lumber making the key much more resistant to warping. Not only do these keys look far better than laminate alternatives, but they also offer a more grand piano-like feel.
Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The CLP 745 includes samples from Yamaha's flagship models - the Yamaha CFX concert grand and Bösendorfer Imperial. The CFX grand piano represents 19 years of research and development to combine traditional craftsmanship with modern-day engineering. This harmonious combination enabled the engineers at Yamaha to examine every element of the piano and discover how each detail can impact the sound.
In 2010, the CFX was the piano of choice by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition. Since then, the CFX has gained worthy recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of all time. Now you can experience this grandeur while in the comfort of your own home. Boasting scintillating highs alongside a powerful bass, these CFX samples will transform your practice into a recital.
Founded in 1828, the Bösendorfer Imperial holds a unique position amongst piano makers. By utilising the Viennese tradition of hand-crafting every part of the piano, the Imperial produces a uniquely warm bass alongside a singing treble. This tone is commonly referred to as the "Viennese Sound". Featuring a design influenced by distinguished composers such as Brahms and Strauss, the Imperial is frequently lauded as the only piano capable of withstanding the energetic playing of Franz Liszt. Still to this day, each and every Imperial is meticulously hand-crafted to perfection by some of the world's best craftsmen.
Recreating the tone of a grand piano is complicated. The way how the hammers, dampers, and strings interact together create an infinite range of tonal expression. All pianos in the 700 series can digitally recreate the interaction of all these parts to create an unparalleled tone. These pianos not only respond to the intensity of playing and release of the keys, but also the speed and depth with which the keys are pressed. Grand Expression Modeling can translate every nuance from your playing into the same limitless tonal variation of a grand piano.
What really makes the Yamaha CLP 745 stand out are the all-new pianoforte samples. The pianoforte is an early rendition of the modern-day grand piano and helped pave the way for new classical and romantic composers. Most repertoire for the pianoforte is from the late-18th to early-19th century where composers such as Haydn, Mozart, and the younger Beethoven wrote their piano music. Now, only with the Yamaha CLP 745 piano, you can perform music from this influential era with pinpoint historical accuracy, while also reaping the benefits of a digital instrument. And thanks to the CLP 745 having samples from two original pianofortes, you can even choose which pianoforte suits your repertoire.
Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) technology optimises your piano’s resonance. In an acoustic piano, each note blends with the next for natural swell and decay of sound. VRM uses an advanced register to measure the strings’ distance and interaction with each other. It can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add an appropriate decay to each note. This gives the CLP 745 a more acoustic feel with textured tones, removing any unnatural breaks in sound.
The CLP 745 offers a breath-taking playing experience. By using special binaural recordings alongside Yamaha’s Stereophonic Optimiser, you are now able to be enveloped by music while using headphones. The Stereophonic Optimiser processes the audio in a way which adjusts the spacing of the sound to replicate the experience of sitting in front of an acoustic piano. What does this mean for you? Now you can enjoy a spacious and natural sound image that removes the drawbacks of performing with headphones.
Who said pianos had to be traditional? The Smart Pianist app offers a range of features that places you in control. The app enables you to select instrument voices, adjust various settings, record your performance, and much more! You will find yourself making music faster with this app as it gives you the freedom to do it via your smart device.
Want to play along with your favourite songs? Now you can! Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your music library, analyses the chord progressions, and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. It's that simple. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play. Please note: Smart Pianist functionality may vary dependent on the model of Yamaha piano used.
